Muse are gearing up to start work on what will be their seventh album, drummer Dominic Howard has revealed.
But the follow-up to 2012’s The 2nd Law isn’t likely to be released until 2015.
Howard tells KROQ: “We’re going to go back in May and start working on some new stuff, so I think we’ll start recording it this year.
“If we can get something out this year that would be great – but definitely next year.
Frontman Matt Bellamy recently said he’d written some “good tracks” for the project and that the trio were aiming to return to a “more basic” sound.
He reported: “We focused on things like synthesisers, drum machines and stuff. On this next album, we’re going to veer back towards musicianship again: guitar, bass and drums. It’s probably going to be a bit of a rawer album, and definitely a bit more rock, I’d say.”
